GREENVILLE, S.C. (November 15, 2017) – David Beckwith, a senior criminal justice major at Bob Jones University, serves as an intern this semester with the Travelers Rest Police Department.
Beckwith, a resident of Hillsdale, Michigan, is gaining experience working alongside Travelers Rest police officers. His responsibilities include recording and organizing arrest information, writing and processing tickets, and shadowing officers as they patrol Travelers Rest.
“This internship has allowed me to see firsthand the bravery and the love that police officers have for their communities,” says Beckwith. “I would encourage individuals to do a ride along with their local law enforcement if given the chance – these officers care for their communities much more than what you might expect.”
